Built with input from alpinist Ralf Dujmovits, Lowa Irox GTX Mid boots are next-generation waterproof trekkers, proving that stability and comfort can work together in a lightweight, athletic design.


Historically, climbers have had trouble reconciling the worlds of light trail shoes, and heavier, technical climbing boots because the comfort demanded by long miles of approach contradicts the burly demands of alpinism. To solve this age-old quandary, Lowa took input from legendary German mountaineer Ralf Dujmovits, and built the Men's Irox GTX Mid Boot. The result is a sturdy, lightweight boot for long, multi-day approaches to some of the world's most remote climbs. So whether you're trekking deep into Pakistan's Karakoram Range or tackling an overnight in your local state park, the Irox GTX's light but stable build will give you all the support you need to get where you're going and still have some gas left in the tank once you get there.


Traditional mountain climbing boots are more suited to alpine terrain because of their robust design. However, the IROX GTX MID is proof of how stability and comfort can go together hand in hand. This sporty trekking shoe impresses due to its innovative design featuring robust textiles, a breathable GORE-TEX membrane and two-tone lining material. In combination with the LOWA Elika non-slip sole, this makes it probably the most attractive compromise between a flat approach shoe and a heavy alpine boot.
